Problem with my 44RE valvebody

Hi

Does any of you know, where I can find a good, cheap refurbished, or new valvebody for the 44RE transmission in my Jeep Grand Cherokee 97, 5.2 limited?
Sometimes it doesn't shift into first, and when it tries to shift into second, it makes 4-5 quick "jumps" before it engages second.. Really wierd and hard to describe, but I think its the valvebody..

See: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f13/d...ssion-1355589/

thought you had it rebuilt? talk to the garage that did the work.

for future reference. that rocking while on the gas is the single fastest way to destroy a dodge transmission.

Yeah, i had it rebuilt, but after it was rebuilt, it didn't go into first when I came to a full stop. So the mechanic told me that it was the valvebody that was the problem, but that we could try to install a new solenoid to begin with. If that didn't work, we would have to install a new valvebody. And thats where I am now..

When you say "rocking", you mean what I did the first time, when the transmission died, right? You dont mean the wierd "jumping" it does this time? Its like when I try to accelerate to hard, it just shakes, and the revs go a little up, but the car doesn't move very fast. Please don't say its the clutch again

i mean what you did in your video. it is 100% guaranteed to destroy the transmission every single time.
